The Rev. Eleanor Woodroffe puts ashes on the head of a worshipper at St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Germantown yesterday.

EASTER is a day for color, and the faithful brought it out for everyone to see. I visited churches and brunches to capture the pageantry of kids in colorful dresses, ladies with embellished hats, and gentlemen looking dapper. n Contact Reuben Harley at BIGRUBE@streetgazing.com , follow him on twitter @BigRubeHarley or read his blog at streetgazing.com .

The city of Philadelphia isn't staging its traditional Easter Sunday parade on Rittenhouse Square, but that doesn't mean you'll be all dressed up with nowhere to go on April 19. Rather, you can head to South Street for that neighborhood's Easter promenade, for which the city now has joined the sponsorship team, or to Ocean City, which is hosting a weekend of Easter activities. On South Street, dress in your best or go eccentric. The promenade will form at the 800 block at noon, head east to Front Street, make an about-face and return to Second and South, where judges will select the finalists.

What's up Sunday? A basketful, that's what. First up, of course, is Easter, a day when people get decked out in their finest threads, bonnets and bootees. A day for parades, promenades and pageants. It's also a day when people flock to church services in higher numbers than usual. This year, they will be doing all of that in an atmosphere of gloom. Accu- Weather said that, after a cloudy day tomorrow possibly with rain, Easter Sunday will be cloudy with even more rain.

There is one big prohibition and a half dozen permissions when it comes to preaching to the Easter Only Crowd. The prohibition is obvious: Make no reference whatsoever to the obvious fact that you haven't seen much of this particular crowd lately. That would be like yelling, "It's about time" at a teenager who has just cleaned up his room. Reward the positive behavior; do not punish the past. Punishment works only when we catch people in the act: That means we can call them some Sundays at 10 a.m. and get somewhere with negative remarks.

After a brief flirtation with normality during the weekend, the weather in Christmas week evidently is going to feel a lot like Easter. White Christmas? Santa's sleigh had better have wheels. Forecasters say the highs Christmas Eve should reach the mid- to upper 60s, about normal for the latter half of April. In the meantime, an impressive streak is about to end. Saturday will be the first day of below-normal temperatures in 24 days. Through Thursday, official temperatures in Philadelphia were running almost 12 degrees above normal this month, which almost certainly will become the warmest December on record.

THE MOTHER OF one of the three men accused of kidnapping and torturing a Jewelers Row employee in April testified yesterday at a bail hearing that her son was coloring Easter eggs on the day of the violent abduction. "He was with his baby mom, and they were home making eggs for Easter," testified Lolita Tucker. "That's what they were supposed to do. Dyeing eggs for Easter. " Tucker is the mother of Basil Buie, 23, one of the three men accused of kidnapping a then-53-year-old woman, who worked at the National Watch and Diamond Exchange store at 8th and Chestnut streets in Center City, on April 4 - the day before Easter Sunday.

While the coincidence of Easter, Passover, and a rare blood moon were reason enough for celebration, the addition of free parking in Philadelphia on Sunday seemed to heighten the harmonic convergence. An admittedly unscientific survey of tourists, Philadelphia residents, and business owners found most people had no idea metered street parking is free on major public holidays, as it was on Easter Sunday. The Philadelphia Parking Authority lists free parking holidays on every meter.

THE ONLY THING Henri David would tell the Daily News about the hat he'll wear when he leads Sunday's 84th Easter Promenade down South Street is that it won't be 6 feet tall. "I once wore a 6-footer and it collapsed midway through the show," David said. "So we're not going to go there anymore. " Instead, David's eye-popping high-rise will top out at a mere 4 feet and, if history serves, will look like he's wearing an Easter storefront display on his head. "I tend to gild the lily," David admitted.

The innocuous forecast that appeared on the front page of The Inquirer on April 3, 1915, the Saturday before Easter, did not evoke images of panic in the streets: "Unsettled, rain likely. " What followed, however, was one of the more amazing meteorological events in the history of local weather observations - a 12-hour siege of heavy snow that mocked meteorologists and the powerful April sun by accumulating 19 inches. An additional 0.4 fell on Easter. "Easter plans blew up with a bang," proclaimed the Evening Bulletin.

EASTER. 'Tis the season to buy chocolate. Seems every Philadelphian has a favorite - Bayard's, in Cherry Hill; Lore's, in Center City; Old City's Shane's; Kensington's Blasius. Right about now, such shops have lines around their counters. Question is, which ones are worth the wait - and the splurge? Filling a midsize basket with a few pounds of locally made chocolate can easily set a bunny back $40. In the interest of saving you time and money, the People Paper took on the tough job of taste-testing Easter candy - milk- and dark-chocolate eggs filled with coconut cream, vanilla buttercream or peanut butter.

On Easter Sunday, after the sugar crash from too much candy, dinner traditionally revolves around a big, glossy ham. It may look picture-perfect as a holiday centerpiece, but if that ham came from the supermarket, its origin story is probably not so pretty. Luckily, there are options in locally produced hams with backstories you can feel good about. Ember Crivellaro, who runs Country Time Farm in Berks County with her husband, Paul, wants those who buy her hams to know what kind of life the pigs had. Because pictures speak louder than words, she carries a small collection of photographs in her wallet.

For almost six years, Katelyn Darrow has devoted herself to Angels of God Clothing Closet, the nonprofit she founded that provides clothing, toiletries, and baby supplies to those in need. She started Angels of God when she was 12, she explains, "because I wanted to pay it forward. " This year, the Pitman resident has another ambitious charitable goal: to assemble at least 500 Easter baskets for children and teenagers in need. Darrow, an 18-year-old senior at Pitman High School, splits her time between school and her nonprofit through her high school's work-study program.
